Coming your way soon - MMO Marine plans latest news!

The Marine Management Organisation is starting the next phase of marine plans, developing plans for the North East, North West, South East and South West. Marine plans guide what happens in the marine area, making sure activities take place at the right time and in the right place, enabling sustainable growth.

We would like to invite you to one of our marine planning events taking place the week beginning Monday 11 April.

The events are an introduction to marine planning, for you to meet your local marine planner and to find out more about what marine planning involves, and how you can get involved. We will also be demonstrating ourMarine Information System and the evidence base where you can view some of the evidence we have already gathered for your area. 

The events are open sessions, including a number of scheduled presentations on marine planning. These will be held hourly, beginning at the start times shown below.

As part of the events you will also be able to find out more about our consultations on the Statement of Public Participation and the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report. The Statement of Participation includes details on how and when and to whom we will engage with through the marine planning process. The Sustainability Appraisal assesses the social, economic and environmental impacts of a marine plan. To find out more about these,please read our latest newsletter.
